Description

The majority of Christians, both in Australia and overseas, know little of Broughton Knox's massive influence on Australian Christianity. This volume contains a selection of his writings on the doctrine of God, many of them previously unpublished. "It is not too much to say that no other contemporary Australian Churchman has had a more original mind or has shown a more penetrating insight into questions of pure Theology, and that insight was derived from his understanding of the supreme revelation of truth in the bible." Sir Marcus Loane's assessment of D.B. Knox would be shared by many who knew him. And yet the majority of Christians, both in Australia and overseas, know little of Broughton Knox's massive influence on Australian Christianity, let alone hi impressive literary output. This volume, the first in a projected series, aims to bring that output back into the public arena. It contains a selection of Broughton Knox's varied writings on the doctrine of God, many of them previously unpublished. The centrepiece of the volume is The Everlasting God, Dr. Knox's best-known work. It is reprinted here, unabridged, but with addition of extensive scriptural footnoting.
Part 2 contains a selection of theological works, ranging from sermons to scholarly articles and radio talks. They cover a multitude of subjects, all related in some way to the Christian worldview as it is shaped by the doctrine of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The general and biblical indexes make this an excellent reference volume for Bible study leaders, theological students, and pastors. The index of 'Knox Gems' also provides a fascinating way into the thought of this extraordinary man.
